Both of the media-centered programs on CNN and the Fox News Channel covered on Sunday the move by The New York Times from Friday to delete a line from an article about President Obama not fully realizing “the anxiety” of Americans following terror attacks in Paris and San Bernardino due to his lack of exposure to cable news.

Other than NPR TV critic Eric Geggans rushing to Obama’s defense on CNN’s Reliable Sources, the other panelists both there and on FNC’s MediaBuzz strongly denounced The Times for what they described as “outrageous,” “perplexing,” and “potentially damning.”
